William Joyce, the renowned author and illustrator, has captivated audiences with his enchanting tales that celebrate the power of imagination and the love of books. Among his most beloved works is the Academy Award-winning short film, 'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,' which features a remarkable character named Gertrude Lintz.

While Gertrude Lintz is a fictional creation, her character is deeply rooted in the real-life experiences of a woman named Gertrude Chandler Warner.

The True Story of Gertrude Chandler Warner

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut. She developed a lifelong passion for books and storytelling at a young age.

In the early 20th century, Warner worked as a librarian in the town of Bridgeport, Connecticut. It was during her time there that she encountered a young boy who had lost his way and taken refuge in the library. Warner took the boy under her wing, providing him with books, comfort, and encouragement.

Inspired by this encounter, Warner began writing a series of children's books featuring a brave and resourceful young heroine named Nancy Drew. The Nancy Drew series became a global phenomenon, selling millions of copies and inspiring countless young readers.

Through Lintz's unwavering belief in the transformative power of books, Joyce pays homage to the real-life legacy of Gertrude Chandler Warner, who empowered generations of readers with her own stories.
